IVY LODGE is a most distinctive and desirable period stone built residence of immense charm, delightfully positioned off Hazelwood Road providing spacious, characterful accommodation together with splendid and extremely private grounds of almost three quarters of an acre with a sweeping carriageway approach to a double garage.
This delightful property has a long and impressive frontage to Hazelwood Road at Duffield with the main carriageway entrance from The Pastures. Hazelwood Road is recognised as being one of the most exclusive addresses in Duffield. There are excellent facilities in Duffield village and all are available within a short walking distance of Ivy Lodge.
Although the exact age of the residence is unknown, the original part is believed to date from the 17th century and at one time was used as an Inn known as the Wheatsheaf but later the property was the subject of a cleverly designed mid 19th century extension. In recent years it has been the subject of an extensive scheme of modernisation and improvement.
The exterior of the property is very pleasing, being constructed in mellow stone and incorporating numerous attractive and interesting architectural features. The beautifully appointed interior provides rooms of excellent size and proportion - the majority having a fine southerly aspect over the grounds and countryside beyond.
The village of Duffield includes excellent educational, recreational, shopping and social amenities - including the noted secondary Ecclesbourne school, excellent primary schools at William Gilbert and The Meadows, Duffield tennis, squash, cricket clubs and golf on the attractive Chevin course or the nearby Kedleston Park golf club. The village is well served by frequent bus and railway services to Derby ( with direct commuter links to London, Birmingham and Sheffield ). A further point to note is that the Derwent Valley in which the village of Duffield nestles, is one of the few world heritage sites.
